  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Hey guys, I heard about this site from that other n00b, WhiteArrow3800, thought I'd check it out.

I currently have a pair of Pontiacs in the Paddock, both Bonnevilles. My DD is a 2003 SSEi with some "light" mods (soon to be more extensive) and my dad drives an 05 GXP. In the past I had an 00 SSEi before it met its untimely demise, and my parents have had a bunch of Pontiacs over their lives, from a 68 Bonne, to a 74 LeMans, 76 Geo Safari Wagon, 86 6000 wagon and a 94 TransSport.

I'm 20, go to college at St. John's University here in central MN and am absolutely obsessed with cars.

Pics of the two current cars:

Hey, welcome! You're from MN, let's be friends. I'm in Stevens Point, WI ;)

My stepmom has a GXP, too. Here's a shot of it with my Sunfire:

I know it's not a very good one but you get the idea ;) Honestly the Bonneville GXP's are some of my all time favorite Pontiacs.

Thanks guys! I really do like both cars, but the SSEi definitely has more get up and go, especially from a dead-stop. The next round of mods is going to make it no-contest.

Current mods:

Intense-Racing Fenderwell Intake (filter is inside the bumper)

Smoothflow Machining Hub and 3.6" supercharger pulley (modular setup)

180* Thermostat

3" Exhaust Downpipe & 3" magnaflow cat

Cleared headlights

Tinted Tails

GXP Carbon Fiber Interior pieces (except rear vents in console)

Aux-In via XM wiring (retains XM)

Yokohama Avid ENVigor tires

Next Round (hopefully):

Ported & Polished Eaton GenIII M90 S/C housing

Ported intake manifold, Exhaust manifold and heads

1.9 ratio roller rockers & 90# springs

3.4 pulley on S/C

Minor other cosmetic mods under the hood

BTW: I forgot to mention, the SSEi is bound to crack 180,000 miles soon, and the GXP is right around 90k. Bought them with 139k in Oct. 08 and 46k in May 09, respectively.

Welcome! I can't see the pics, because I'm at work... BUT I'm from Fridley, MN, just stationed in Cali.

I've been to St. Johns before, very nice campus! :bowdown:

Thanks everyone!!! I'll throw up some more pictures in the right section. :(
